ssl_engine configuration

Hello All,

Could you please point me to a configuration example of using ssl_engine
configuration directive ?.

Is there a patch needed to nginx to get it work as I saw a few discussions
around this or are they already merged to mainline ?.

I see here
the usage example of using ssl_certifcate_key specifying a engine:name:id,
however it is not clear to me, what should be the "id" here.
Also, I presume, the ssl_engine is a global directive and should be
indicated with the engine name as identified by openssl.

Any pointers/references regarding getting ssl_engine working with nginx
would be helpful.

thank you,
